Day 17 and Lovely Blog Award!!


Here is what I wore on this beautiful Wednesday!

Cardigan: F21
Button up Blouse: H&M
Skinny Pants: H&M
Gold Flats: Steve Madden - Thrifted
Purse: H&M

My lovely friend Domnika did my nails last night. She did such an awesome job! I love them!
I remixed the same blue cardigan that I wore on Sunday but put it over a flowered button up blouse. Can you believe I have had this sweater for well over a year and have never worn it until Sunday? Thanks to my no shopping challenge, I am being much more creative with my wardrobe and actually wearing all my clothes!
(I would like to thank my handsome husband for being so supportive and for taking my lovely picture)

And now off to the next topic of tonights post:

Rach said...

Thanks for the shout out sweetheart! I love the cornflower blue color of that sweater. I haven't been to F21 since the beginning of summer, so I definitely need to get my butt over there for the new fall styles!

Romanian...that is impressive! Wow, your commute was crazy, huh? I have not made the drive from Portland to Seattle yet, but when my sister flew out here to visit me she did and she was so exhausted afterwards! We have only lived in Portland (well, Hillsboro ;) for a year and I love it here. Oh, and I am totally with you on the coffee thing!!!! The best part of my day is my first cup :)
